ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

WE ARE BACK! CATC 2022
COIVD-19 has affected every aspect of life around the globe. We had to postpone our sixth conference several times due to the pandemic, in addition to our concern for the safety and well-being of our friends and partners. Our world has changed dramatically, nevertheless, the injustices of Israeli policies, supported by misguided theological positions, are still alive and well. CATC has always been committed to speak and act prophetically against oppression, and to amplify the voices of the oppressed behind separation walls.
The leadership of Christ at the Checkpoint would like to invite you to our coming conference, Am I My Neighbor’s Keeper? It will be held in Bethlehem, Palestine between 26 and 29th of May, 2022.
Your presence and solidarity are critical! We will continue to monitor the situation and travel restrictions, and arrange accordingly.

We are a community of evangelical Christians who believe that following Jesus with integrity means that our lives are formed by our love for God, the teaching of the Bible and a fearless life of discipleship in the complexities of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. We believe that one of the first hallmarks of discipleship is love for both our own community and for our enemies. We wish to find Jesus at the center of everything we do and to make his life our life. Which means finding courageous love for Palestinian Arabs and Israeli Jews alike.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Bob Roberts, Jr.

Bob Roberts Jr. is the founding pastor of NorthWood Church in Keller, Texas

“There is nothing else like Christ at the Checkpoint.  I’ve been and it has had an incredible impact on me.  To meet Palestinian evangelicals and hear how they struggle with the issues of the land, occupation, and the practice of their faith firsthand is invaluable.  I encourage everyone who can, who has any interest in the Body of Christ in Palestine to attend this conference.  Regardless of what your positions may be, you’ll hear many different views and hear firsthand from the people most affected by Western theology and geopolitical issues”

Joseph Cumming

Pastor of the International Church at Yale

If somebody wants to know what Palestinian Christians think, they should come and ask them what they think. They will be happy to tell you. They will be happy to organize a ‘Christ at the Checkpoint’ conference

Chris Wright

The International Ministries Director of Langham Partnership International

Having participated in two Christ at the Checkpoint conference in past years, I found them greatly challenging and informative. I was impressed with the range and balance of speakers and the desire to listen respectfully to voices from radically different perspectives, theologies and locations. I was also deeply moved by the willingness to share one another’s pain on both sides of “the wall,” and the profound longing for biblically rooted and defined justice, reconciliation and peace. For those of us who stand “outside” the realities of life in Israel-Palestine, there is so much to learn, so much to re-think, and so many dear brothers and sisters in Christ, both Arab and Jewish, to help us understand. We need to hear Christ in and through them.
